My NSTA / Peers / Alison Wright

Travel and education have always been my passions. I was a classroom teacher for nearly twenty years in diverse settings. I was an Early Childhood Educator, Elementary Educator, and High School Educator; in Public, Private, and Progressive Schools; in Special Education and General Education; and, have been very fortunate to have been a student and/or educator in Australia, England, NJ, ME, VT, MA, and CA. I have been very fortunate to travel, connect, and collaborate with educators around the nation on the importance of science education!

    Science Behind Sports

    Science can provide a meaningful context to teach English Language Arts skills as well as Mathematics. Similarly, sport can be used as a vehicle for learning the underlying principles of science and mathematics embedded in the mechanics of performing a sport. Moreover, if science is taught like we teach sports, students will be doing the science; rather than memorizing a lot of facts, they will be engaged in the "playing", hands-on approach, and the camaraderie of teamwork.
